Got these for kayaking and stand-up paddle board. Excellent for both. Substantial fabric, secure pocket for that all-important vehicle key at the take-out. Kokatat's quality has always been superb and these trunks are winners.

First off, these shorts do not include a mesh liner, which apparanetly some people believe is required for a pair of shorts to be considered swim trunks. Of course, that is definitely not the case. There are literally a ton of various swimming trunks/shorts produced, by tons of differet companies, that do not have a mesh liner. Personally, I hate mesh liners. If I need extra support than I would much rather wear a pair of athletic underwear underneath. The end result is a million times more comfortable and you get FAR more support than you get with mesh liners. Kokatat is a company that focuses mainly on paddling activities and once you realize that....well, your expectation should come far more in line with the shorts you will recieve. The only reason I didn't give these a 5 star review is because I prefer the legs on my shorts to be a bit tapered, due to my having skinny legs, and these are pretty straight cut. Beyond that, they are a great pair of shorts, especially for the price you can get them for on STP. I would love to see more products from Kokatat on STP as they are well made and last a good long while if taken care of. All in all, just a great pair of shorts at an amazing price.

Just received this product and so far they are perfect. I used them one a two day whitewater kayaking trip and they performed excellent. The shorts were comfortable, fit well and dried fast. As mentioned in some of the other post the material is sorta thin, yet still feels like it will hold up well. Overall they have been an excellent buy.

decent cut of cloth, simple design with stylish logo, and they fit and hang fairly well. I just never thought to wonder if they would have an interior mesh liner or not. I suppose I should have figured that based on the low price.
